44w ago - Following up on the previous release and YouTube Plugin, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer Andreas Oman has updated Showtime PS3 Media Player to version 4.2 with the changes outlined below.
ps3: Remove "/dev_hdd0/tmp/turnoff" before shutting down system
Fix broken colors in VOBSUB
Fix regression causing crash with embedded DVD/VOBSUB tracks
httpclient: Fix a regression when using range queries to determine filesize
Caused problems with minidlna (possibly other servers)
Fix the oversized album art during music playback
ps3: Fix video stuttering in some high bitrate video streams
Fix broken date-sorting (Allow user to sort on newest or oldest first)
Rework subtitle scheduling
This allows us to pick subtitles that are out of sync with video stream. Also makes it possible to do negative subtitle time shifting for embedded subs
ps3: Increase audio buffer size
Fix stuttering playback with some audio formats (APE is one)
Fix problem that caused picture stuttering in some movies after 20-25 minutes
Add support for LPCM in DVD playback
Add movie chapters support where supported by file formats
Chapters can be found in menu during video playback next to seek thumbnails and audio/subltitle tracks
Fix broken seeking in FLAC files
Add support for subtitle plugins
This also removes the built-in support for opensubtitles.
Opensubtitles is now available as a plugin. No username + password is needed as opensubtitles.org allows anonymous logins
The list of subtitles are now sorted based on user preferred languages
Fix a bug that made "Custom query" impossible to erase in the metadata editor. It would come back next time the item was scanned
Fix a crash that was caused by invalid markup tags in SRT files
Typically this would happen if the SRT file contained a subtitle entry with just one tag that was invalid. Now such invalid tags will be
presented as normal text instead.
ps3: Fix a crash on PS3 when playing AAC HEv2 files
This was caused by too small stack for the threads
Fix recently introduced crash in opensubtitles.org module
Add stretch-to-widescreen and stretch-to-fullscreen as options during video playback
Add support for getting metadata from thetvdb.com
Allow user to adjust subtitle timing €10 minutes in increments of 0.5 seconds
Improved support for opensubtitles.org
Showtime will now search in opensubtitles.org database using the movie title and optionally the IMDB ID if it manages to resolve that
To limit the number of returned results it will only include the subtitles that matches the languages configured in Settings -> Languages.
If no such configuration has been entered all results will be displayed.
ps3: Sign pkg files to work with 4.xx CFW
Fix some issues related to mono audio in videos
Use external metadata (TMDB, etc) for video title in video OSD
Avoid doing external metadata lookup for very short file names
Add support for playback of HLS (Http Live Streaming) URLs
Add support for user configurable fonts
To install and use a new font put the font someplace where Showtime can browse it. When clicking on the font Showtime will what you want to use the font for. Showtime will copy the font to an internal storage location.
To select between installed fonts or to reset to default, go to Settings -> Look and Feel -> Fonts

Make sure Showtime does not downgrade a plugin to a lesser version
Add support for replacing various parts of the UI using plugins. More information about this will surface once plugins support it
For beta-testers of plugins there is now a setting under "General" where a user can specify a, list of space separated, passwords
that will enable beta testing of plugins. Passwords are administrated by the plugin developer
Add support for adjusting volume during video playback using up/down keys
Don't wrap from end to beginning of list during continuous video playback
Correctly recognize '.m2ts' as a file type ending to ignore
Reworked audio pipeline. This should fix various issues. In particular various clicks and pops now and then on PS3 should be gone.
Upgrade to libav9_beta2. This is a huge upgrade that might cause problems with some files. Please report bugs if anything seems to have broken
Fix broken RTMP(E) playback on PS3
Fix a problem that caused playback time to stay at 0:00 for some audio files
Fix problem that caused resume position not to be reset when movie ended
Fix search lookup loops when changing TMDB configuration
Add support for Shoutcast playback. Plugins are required to be able to browse Shoutcast services
Add support for setting custom movie titles directly from the item popup menu
Add an action in settings->general to clear the entire metadb item table. Safeguarded with a popup as it is a non-revocable action.
ps3: When seeking using L2/R2, rescale seek delta based on duration of feature. In principle this make it so that the user can always seek from begining to end in ~2 seconds regardless of how long the currently playing media is.
Add Exit and Standby as items in the page popup menu
Only reset screensaver timer if movie is actually playing
Add support for plugins that can replace certain parts of the UI
Add support for categorization of plugins. When browsing available plugins they will appear under a category instead of a single long list
TMDB: Let user choose which language to use for TMDB. Also lets user choose if to display the original title or translated title
Don't set resume time for videos if current position < one minute. This makes sure the user does not accidentally lose the resume
position if restarting the video from beginning by mistake
Let 'mark as seen' create entry in item table if it does not exist
Improve Showtime's response time to play/pause events
